Default Sue's first attempts at pyrography

My wife Sue has enjoyed viewing other peoples projects on the forums for a long time. She has also had the pleasure of speaking to several members on Skype and at our "Sawdust Saturday" get togethers. Sue was very pleased when I told her we were going to have this catagory and promptly went to gathering images to work with. In order from left to right are her first 3 efforts.

Hi Mike

I am not familiar with the tecnique but I do know when I see something I like, they all look great. If given a choice of my favorite I have to say I like #3, with that piece the first thing I feel is comfort , peace,,, an easy feeling.

Great job Sue

Sue completed these 3 and had been working on her 4th burning when she had her stroke. The iron is an inexpensive one with interchangeable tips purchased from Michael's, a national craft store. I just gave them a sealing coat of shellac and took the photos.

These are excellent for a first timer Mike. Tell Sue they are great and that we are all praying for a speedy recovery.

It's difficult for me to comprehend that anyone without special training can turn out such fine results from the word go. Do please pass on my remarks and wishes for a speedy and full recovery Mike.

I agree with Harry - Sue shows real talent with her projects. Have her keep up the projects and the more she does the better - well she is already better - anyhow her talent will increase with each piece. I love to do pyrography but am still struggling with it.
LOL...no talent..

Mike, that's about as good as I have ever seen with a craft burner...truely. If you pick her up a lamp dimmer that she can plug it into, she can dial in lower temperatures for it. Many use them for this and they work well. I hope Sue is doing better Mike. She has talent!

Hi Mike,

Sue has some real talent. I couldn't nor would I attempt to choose which one would be a favorite because... all 3 are marvelous. I hope Sue is doing better.
